    Or just use the Cable Tray tool, sketch the first segment at an elevation and then enter a new elevation for the next segment and then drop the elevation back down to the previous.

    Sadly it's easy, link a survey and start modelling on top of the property after ignoring the warning about the survey file's extents.

    Short answer, no other than it doesn't use multiple cores very much. Your wallet and the hardware itself will hit a maximum before Revit will. The real question is how far above the minimum...

    Yes I don't think it is trying to show the actual distance in this case. Most of the time that distance might be too small to see? I've never seen anything that formally explains it though.

    If you tag each piece with a unique value like B1 and B2 then you can just use the Mark parameter. If you tag each piece with the same value when they have the same size such as there are 20 each B1...

    My earlier reply ignores the geomarker features which are very new to Revit workflow. I need to be able to export from Revit to share files with civil and other disciplines primarily. I can...

    Regarding a Host and Linked files... the last time I checked...Filters only touch them. Having the system graphic overrides set to what I preferred in the host model was the first thing I tried...

    Autodesk (Revit team) recommends using Auto - Center to Center because the extents of many Civil/Survey files are quite large. Revit will force "center to center" if the file violates its rules for...

    It's quirky...sometimes it does it nicely, sometimes not. You can expand the warning and make a note of the Element ID(s) and then use Select by ID to zero in on them.

    Curiosity strikes... how big is this panel? A shingle? Concrete Tile? Large metal panel?

    How does the project benefit from digging deeply in this particular rabbit hole? Does a separate roof...

    I saw a project that opted to model each tile as a separate ceiling...that was interesting.

    I'm not sure why you'd need the plan region for a basic house layout. The stair should appear in the second floor plan as soon as the floor is cut out where the stair is. The floor will mask the...

    Not at all. Glad someone is actually paying closer attention. Most of the time its just glossed over. It is a very deep rabbit hole...so harnessing Dynamo to help is wise. My comment was...

    I ran into this between AutoCAD and Microstation years ago too. Each application had their own mindset about who and how things are managed. That mindset affects every feature they developed and each...

    A thick floor can be sloped too, sketch the plan of it, select one edge and choose Defines Slope, set value (the...

    Overall the focus on managing such things has always seemed, to me, to be very small firm and small project minded. As if their expectation is that these things don't scale into real problems when...

    Yes, that's true unfortunately. If Line Patterns are "new" they'll be added to a project. It is a good idea to remove all Line Patterns from each family so only those that are intended to come along,...

    The boundary must completely surround the entire stair and not touch it at all for it to affect a stair's cut plane.

    Speaking for my response only... those are the only categories for families under that tab. I took your reply to suggest that there ought to be more. Whatever you assign to those Line Patterns will...

    For the OP: I'd either use a thick floor and shape edit or just Edit the profile of a wall...since both can host a railing too. It's easy too.

    Two seemingly eternal items of FUD:

    Families don't have Annotation Categories...Projects do. There aren't line styles in Families either, only Object Styles which can have Line Patterns assigned to them.

    For schematic layouts I like columns, create a few different corner conditions and just drop them in place. They join up with walls and create the appearance most people are after. For CD's it starts...
